I fully agree with you. Image Quality far exceeds all other requirements I would look in a camera.

No, sorry. Image quality is very good on all DSLRs released in the past 5 years. People post some amazing photos even with p&s cameras.

Besides, K01 is using the Sony's 16 MP sensor, and as dxomark confirms the image quality is close to half a dozen other cameras that all use similar/related sensors (Nex-5N, D5100, D7000, K-5, C3, F3) and 1/2 stop better than SLTs. There is nothing special about K01 image quality. It's what we expect from the 16 MP sensor. Nothing more. Nothing less (Dxomark).

The image quality alone isn't everything. AF is very important too (and K01 sux on that as K-mount lenses are optimized for PDAF). Speed and burst is important too (not just for action, but for bracketing), and K01 only manages one fps in RAW. It can shoot 6 fps in jpegs mode only, but the AF is fixed at the first shot. The ability to compose images outdoor is important too, and K01 doesn't have a viewfinder, and the LCD isn't even the new white magic one (like on RX100).

Really, we know everything about K01. The camera has been out for a while, reviewed by DPR

reviewed by IR

two of the most credible review site on the internet.

It's not as if we don't know K01
